The so-called right to abortion, which the courts have invented out of thin air, enables women to walk away from the responsibilities of motherhood and caring for a child they have conceived.
One of the many unintended consequences of this policy is that fathers are now beginning to claim the same kind of right to walk away from their parental responsibilities. In fact, lawsuits have begun in which men have claimed that because they offered to pay for the abortion of their child, they should not have any further responsibilities toward raising that child if the mother decides to give birth. After all, if we can’t force the mother to be a mother, why should we force the father to be a father? The bitter fruits of Roe v Wade continue to unfold.
